#OptOutside GREEN Friday
November 25, 2016 @ 6:00 AM - 7:00 PM
How will your community or congregation gather and get OUT on the day after Thanksgiving for #OptOutside (an alternative to the unofficial National BuyBuyBuy Day known as Black Friday)?
Here are some possibilities to get you started. Adapt one of these, or design something totally new!
- Habitat Care workparty, clearing invasive plants so that natives can thrive along a well-used Rail Trail
- Tree planting, blessing, and community lunch.
- A Holy Hike (This one takes some core religious ritual outdoors, but others can be organized other ways)
A few not-yet-created ideas: Photography? Birdwatching? A “listening tour” quiet walk around your neighborhood or park? Geocaching with prayers at each stop? Art outdoors?
(PS: you can use your “to purchase” list to support local businesses on Small Business Saturday instead.)
